Wow! Pretty much sums up our experience. Very relaxed atmosphere. Not too noisy (no blaring music). Very personable and attentive staff. If you like oysters, you should consider trying the chargrilled option. I usually eat strictly raw... I am glad I gave the chargrilled a try. Hubby doesn't care for poultry or seafood. He tried the red beans and rice,... More

Although it looks like an upscale place from outside, the interior is relaxed and inviting. I sat by the bar and quickly had a drink in my hand. The blue crab craws were great and the oyster sampler was fantastic. Wish i had more time to try everything else in the menu. I would pass on the lump crab onion... More

This restaurant has suffered from some inconsistencies in food and service over time, but generally it is very good. It is pricey for an oyster house. Love the gumbo!

Wintzell's is a great place for seafood in central Alabama. I had the fried green tomatoes with crawfish sauce. It was served piping hot and tasted great. Service is very good not only with food, but you can have a conversation with your dinner companions without being interrupted over and again. In the heart of down town Montgomery, this place...

Oysters on half shell smaller than quarter size. Other food on plate okay but over priced for quantity and quality. Not at all comparable to wintzells at orange beach.

Me and my coworkers went here for lunch. Customers that came in after us got their food before we did. When the waiter eventually brought us some bread it was cold and had no butter. The Manger stopped by all the tables around us but never stopped to speak to us. We had to call her over. I had the... More

We had lunch on a Saturday (it was not busy) and ordered from the regular menu. The server was friendly but distracted. Our food came out pretty quick but was taken by a different server to the wrong table. After I went to save our food, the server who dropped our food off quickly apologized then left without asking if... More

Food was exquisite! Seafood pasta was awesome with seared scallops and shrimp that was cooked to perfection! Raw oysters were the best we've had in a long time. Salad was also great and served in cold bowls, which is what we like! We had fantastic service as well, and will definitely be back!
